We really enjoy KC Prime Steakhouse. I am on their email list and received a $20 gift coupon for our anniversary. We went on Friday evening and the meal did not disappoint! I had a beautiful shrimp cocktail and my husband had French onion soup. Both were excellent! My entree was a Halibut special, pan seared perfectly and Mark had the free range chicken. As always, our meals were amazing! It's one of our regular go to places.

I always enjoy the food at KC Prime. Their petite filet with mashed sweet potatoes is a delicious combination. I also like the calamari appetizer. It is very different than typical marinara sauce.

Restaurant was not busy but our waiter was slow. Disappointing. Food was slow to come out too.

Jarrod and Paul, our Servers, were excellent. Always on top of things but never intrusive. All the food we ordered was delicious and cooked as ordered.

I have been to KC a couple of times before for work related parties. I decided to bring my family there for my wife's birthday dinner as we both enjoy a nice filet mignon! The service was great, our waitress went out of her way to satisfy my picky eater daughter (vegan). The meal was excellent with the steak cooked perfectly. Although the restaurant is 50 min. from my home it is very close to my oldest son's house so we can meet easily to have dinner together.

I have to say the food was just mediocre especially for the price. Honestly the soup was better than my meal. Same goes for the steak that my spouse ordered.

Excellent service presentation taste. The best ribs I ever had great taste and they come right off the bone. The tuna seared was also outstanding. Highly recommend.

First time at KC Prime. From the minute we walked in the door, we were greeted by friendly hostesses and host. Waiter came right over with the menus which he went over with us. Someone brought over a bread basket right away. We ordered chilled seafood platter to start which was very nice. Delmonico and strip steaks and rack of ribs. Our waiter was just GREAT! Drinks filled, timing of when appetizer and entrees came were perfect. Manager popped by to say hi and see how everything was. I have been to plenty of steakhouses and this has to be one of the best overall experiences. Food was prepared as we asked and was a good value. Kudos to the management team — well run restaurant and will go back again!

It’s been several years since being here. The sushi tuna appetizer was the highlight. The filet was the low point. It was flavorless and over cooked. The service was worse. The waitress never came back to check on us after the meal. I will not be recommending this place to anyone.

For the food yes however the place appears to be an unfinished project. Seats were not comfortable and the wait staff appeared to have little support. Would continue on the drive and stop at ruth’s Chris steakhouse instead.

Had a terrific dinner at KC Prime last night; had an outstanding bone in Prime Rib, my wife had the chicken entree which she loved. Started with the super tasty tuna taco's as an appetizer..they were delicious and the tuna was totally sushi grade. Had the house cabernet wine which was hearty and full of flavor. Finished with the delicious creme brulee which was perfectly prepared. The atmosphere was so inviting and will rival or surpass any NYC steakhouse. Our server was flawless, and kept a close eye to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our meal. I have been coming to KC Prime for many years for both lunch and dinner and have always been blown away by the superior quality of their food, super friendly service, and warm surroundings. The owner even came over to check on us after our meal and he was very gracious and thanked us for coming in. Terrific people all the way around, it's obvious they work very hard to exceed their customers' dining experiences. Thank you to KC Prime for making another memorable evening!

An odd experience - there were some problems with the meal (which in general was quite good) and to their credit, when we raised the issues, they quickly brought management in to address them satisfactorily and quickly. We loved the food - great prime rib, ribs and chicken dishes - and management was responsive to the problems. Had they not been, I wouldn’t be as positive as I am but I will definitely be back.

Food came with dead fruit in it
3 men at next table were rude belligerent and
Used disgusting language
Manager unable to control situation
Owner went to the men’s table first and then to our table
Would not replace two entrees ( shared among 3 women) as one had big in it and other was cold
Not a fun birthday celebration and had to endure abuse from other customers
There was no check
I have been a customer for 20 years and now will
never go back

KC Prime has been one of our favorite restaurants in Central Jersey for many, many years. We have celebrated many occasions here, including birthdays, anniversaries, New Year’s Eve, and have always had excellent meals, whether steak or seafood. On this visit, we had tuna and crab cakes, both well presented and very tasty as usual. This place also serves great martinis! Highly recommended!!

It's not "where a the beef" , but "wheres the salad"? I have been dining at kc prime for 17 years with no complaints. The food is always good. For some reason, they decided to cut out the side salad you used to get with your $33.00 steak. Why? They want you purchase a side salad. How much could tha salad have possibly cost? .50 cents maybe? It drives me crazy when restaurants that you know are making money decide to cut portions. Will I go back to kc prime? Yes, but instead of 3 or 4 times a year, maybe once a year.

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner here on Aug 3rd. The waiter was extremely accommodating for some special requests, and knowing it was our anniversary, surprised us with a complimentary dessert. The chef was also able to accommodate a request for surf and turf, which was delicious! We forgot how much we love this place and can't wait to come back again.

Service was excellent. Can't remember our waiter's name maybe Carl(?), middle-aged guy that golfs, he was terrific. Food was very good, large portions. Ambiance is okay. Excellent for a quiet dinner and conversation.

Service was very good. My daughter’s prime rib was very fatty - I would say about 1/3 of it she was unable to eat. My husband’s prime rib was better but it was slightly over cooked. I had the ribs and they were not too good. I can get the same quality at Fridays for less money.
